I have a wonderful befriender who has helped me through some difficult times whilst in custody, who sees me as an ordinary human being rather than as a prisoner. I am able to express my thoughts and seek guidance from my befriender, who is encouraging and engages in a range of interesting subjects which has broadened my horizons and helped me focus on what I want to achieve in life on release. Having a befriender has made being in prison a less stressful event and being treated like a normal human being allows me to want to be a productive member of society. It cannot be stressed enough how important their work is, especially for people who have no-one else to talk to on the outside
